Fife Youth Work Week

1 to 7 November 2011

The Fife Youth Work Partnership was established in 2008 with the purpose of developing, monitoring and celebrating the youth work opportunities that are offered in communities across Fife. The partnership is a multi-agency group bringing together service providers from the statutory and voluntary sectors, all of whom are active in supporting Fife’s young people to make a difference, to achieve, to succeed and to do so with the right level and types of support.

The Fife Youth Work Partnership has established the Fife Youth Work Week in order to raise awareness amongst young people, communities and decision makers of the range and breadth of the opportunities that are available in Fife for young people. There is a programme of events and activities that are a blend of direct youth work activity aimed at young people, awareness raising events aimed at funders and decision makers and events that will see the introduction of new youth work opportunities to Fife.

The Fife Youth Work Partnership are confident that the programme put in place will challenge the long held views of many in our communities as to what youth work is, what it achieves and what it can be. Fife Youth Work Week is about giving a voice to the sector and to recognise and celebrate the good youth work that goes on every day in communities across Fife.

The online programme is available to view here.
